3. DAVID WONG
There’s nothing conventional about violinist, David Wong. Passionate about both the classical and electric violin, David hopes to smash the image of the instrument being ‘boring’ and ‘stodgy’. His cover of ‘Radioactive’ by Imagine Dragons might give you an idea how he’s going to achieve just that! He is also about to release his EP of violin covers in about a week!

Many believe that one’s childhood defines the rest of one’s life. For Steve Fertil, aka Steve Reason, it is the fuel that drives his passion, creativity and ambition. Coming from a “very underprivileged background”, Steve believes that “you have no other choice but to work hard to make yourself something or someone and stop the cycle.” It is a belief that has transformed him into a multi-talented artist, a decorated US Marine and StarCentral Magazine’s Musician of the Month for September 2012.

7. YUWEN and WEIWEN
While some twins may try their hardest to distinguish themselves from their siblings by having different interests, tastes, etc…this is definitely not the case for Canadian sisters, Yuwen and Weiwen – StarCentral’s Group/Duo of the Month for August 2012! They love “…having someone to share experiences with. It’s also great because…harmonies can be sung to enhance the overall sound, giving depth to the music. Being able to make mistakes, laugh at them together, and help each other improve musically is also a rewarding part…”
